This flair at the compressor facility across the road has been burning more the past few days, and the picture does not due it justice in color and shape. The higher flame is accompanied by excessive noise so you know it is burning.
The replacement gate guards came about five this afternoon just to see and chat. They will be back six-thirty in the morning.

The replacement gate guards arrived on time while we were finishing our packing up stowing of our things. The left rear jack did not come up as expected and took some thought before quickly stowing. It was stuck to the ground so I started the enfine to build up air pressure which inflates the air bag suspension. The left rear still did not come up after breaking free from the ground. I got out my trusty stick to add additional force to raise the jack with no movement, more thinking. Ok shut off the engine to stop the noise, noise from the horn that sounds when a jack is not stowed correctly in place for driving. Thinking ends, when I started the engine to build air pressure, the jack system power was lost, driver did not select retract again. As soon as I pressed the stow button the jack came up and stowed correctly. I pulled up in the driveway sothey could get their rig in place, Bonnie had moved Tan Jan out of the way must have left the key on and would not restart without jump. We departed the gate before eight this morning headed first to Pilot in Tilden for diesel fuel for Buster, $ 3.329 a gallon today.
An easy 173 mile trip north on TX 16 to I 35 to US 281 to TX71 east to Spicewood. But there was a lot of rain as we drove north, a lot of wheel spray reducing viability and I reduced speed accordingly. There was a real heavy shower as we turned east on TX 71 but slowed as we arrived at the re park. More rain as I disconnected Tan Jan from Buster and backed into the site.
